Last Night I Had The Strangest Dream

I actually had a dream about the upcoming Tyrannosaurus Mouse rehearsal. It turned out, of course, to be a recording session and I have a very detailed memory of discussing the track layout for the drums with the engineer.
The key is to reduce the sheer number of tracks. We agreed that there should be one kick, one snare, one right overhead for the "toms" side of the kit, and one overhead which would take care of the hi-hat because we didn't need a dedicated hi-hat track.
And yes, that was in my dream.
I was also disenchanted with the relatively small size of the guitar amp booth, but the studio we were in doesn't exist so that doesn't matter.
We recorded this:
